America’s oldest operating brewery, Yuengling, pairs with the arts-and-culture nonprofit group ArtsQuest to host an authentic Oktoberfest tinged with Pennsylvania flair and toast to Deutschland heritage with German food, beer, and music. Admission to the festival endows ticketholders with access to all of the day’s activities, such as the ceremonial Oktoberfest keg tap with Dick Yuengling on September 29, the unveiling of Yuengling’s brand-new Oktoberfest beer, and the annual running of the schnitzels.
After reveling in Bavarian culture, Oktoberfesters can visit the Yuengling Festhalle tent to sup from the stately sprawl of traditional German dishes available for purchase, such as cheese soup, potato pancakes, sliced-pork sandwiches, and grilled cornish hen. Live music fills the airwaves each evening, and visitors can watch rabble-rousing activities such as the barrel-roll competition and beer-stein races or fan the flames of their inner competitor ($5/person entry for each activity). Free parking is available in the lot across the street from SteelStacks.
